Standfast & Barracks is proud to work alongside universities nationwide, offering factory tours and work placements.
We host live creative projects, setting our textile students a task, which our in-house designers judge on completion.
In the past, winners have seen their designs printed on cloth, which they have gone on to show in their final exhibitions and at New Designers.
We’ve also showcased winning designs at prestigious tradeshows in Italy, London and Germany, creating a very special kind of buzz for both our students and us!
We offer one year long graduate design placements, giving textile design graduates the opportunity to develop the skills they have learnt on their course and apply to a real-life working environment. This gives them the opportunity to develop their portfolio and learn from our experienced team.
Chloe Nalwoga – Design Graduate Intern “While working in the design studio, I have enjoyed drawing and designing collections for customers. I have found learning about the colouration process very interesting and have gained valuable experience using Best Image and Photoshop to create colourways.”
